It was chilly and rainy over the weekend which left me craving some good comfort food. I went on the hunt for a good slow cooker pot roast and I found a winner! It turned out so flavorful!!
First, I chopped up the carrots, celery and potatoes and threw them in the crock pot.
Next, I generously seasoned the meat with salt, pepper and flour on both sides and seared it to lock in the flavors (this is the trick for getting that rich taste).
Once the meat was browned, I set it aside and cooked the onion and garlic and then added tomato paste and chicken broth to create the gravy.
Next, I added the pot roast and the gravy mixture to the crock pot and let it work its magic.
6 hours later we had yummy pot roast!!

(I omitted the mushrooms and added potatoes. Also, I could only find a boneless roast.)
The video that goes with this recipe was very helpful. I am now curious to try other recipes from Chef John.
